Feedly Cloud ready before Google Reader shutdown, no longer requires web plugin

google reader retirementWith just over a week before Google Reader shuts down, Feedly has announced that the company has completed rolling out its Feedly Cloud sync service. All Google Reader users who sign up for Feedly will be transitioned automatically and seamlessly to Feedly’s own servers for uninterrupted service. Users will have to make sure they’re running the latest versions of Feedly on the web and on mobile. With the release of Feedly Cloud, the company has also revealed a redesigned web interface without the need for a web plugin. Previously, users had to install an extension to use the service in a browser.

Feedly is first out the door to roll out and complete replacement for Google Reader’s services. Digg has a reader app in the works but won’t be launched until next week on June 26th. While it’s still a week ahead of Google Reader’s retirement, it’ll still be second place to Feedly. Both companies are considering paid options in the future.
